Astrology Preview for January 2015

January is icy with several long periods of quiet for the Moon while VOC. There is also a Mercury retrograde from Aquarius back into Capricorn. Several shifts in personal energy are felt as Mars and Venus move from Aquarius to Pisces. Mars and Venus will both square off with Saturn newly in Sagittarius before passing over Neptune and Chiron. The New Moon in Aquarius (Jan 20) waxes in at the end of the Month preceding Mercury's retrograde (Jan 21) , shortly following Mars' entrance into Pisces (Jan 12) and preceding Venus' exit from Aquarius (Jan 27). Overall, to me, it looks like a good month to get our collective heads on straight while backing up to punt as necessary. If you are a resolution setter, these are best declared at the New Moon in Capricorn on December 20th or the New Moon in Aquarius on January 20th. New Year's Eve, just make sure you have enough snacks to go around and reserve plenty of room for comfort under the waning Moon in Taurus. If you are determined to set resolutions on New Year's Eve, it's best to word them toward eradication or banishing of things you no longer want in the New Year rather than to focus on what you want to build. The New Moon in Capricorn focuses on re-building and new leadership efforts. While the New Moon in Aquarius is for hopeful wishes and networking.
